HOW TO TRAVEL MORE FOR LESS


OK I am gonna get straight to the point. Almost allof us love travelling, but the huge hurdle is that travelling requires a substantial budget. In the last 4 years I have managed to do a decent amount of travelling and have learnt a thing or two about how to travel more for less.


1.     TRAVEL IN OFF-SEASON
Most obvious one!  What I do is I travel slightly closer to the season. That way I know I am not travelling in extremely uncomfortable climate but also not making a hole in my pocket.

2. BOOK PRIVATE ROOMS IN HOSTELS
If you aren’t a fan of dorms, I know I am not only because of common bathrooms, but love the culture and meeting new people, book a private room in hostels. They aren’t heavy on pockets, they are clean and mostly up on vibrant vibes, almost always clean and you get your privacy too.

 3. HEAVY BREAKFAST PLEASE
Opt for heavy brunch or heavy breakfast, skip lunch or snack on something light and then you can splurge on dinner. Most of the hotels have complimentary breakfasts too.

4. TRAVEL LOCAL
Our country has so many beautiful places, some touristy, some explored and some are hardly explored. The Himalayas, the beautiful coastline stretching and bordering almost 3/4th of our country, the jungles,  the deserts, the nilgiris, the sahyadris, we got it all.
You don’t have to book a flight to a European country to “travel”

5. BOOK FLIGHTS IN ADVANCE
Try and plan your trips in advance. So you can book flights and even accommodation at better prices and save on a good amount of money.


6. COLLECT POINTS/MILES
7.  Look for stays that aren’t right in the middle of touristy places and town centres.
Its chaotic as well as expensive

8.   BOOK IN INCOGNITO MODES.
Have learnt this the hard way, use your browser’s incognito mode to avoid fare hikes based on your search history.

9.       RENT A BIKE/ PUBLIC TRANSPORT
There is an option of renting a bike in so many touristy places. This mode of transport doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket and gives you a flexibility of travelling according to your schedule and wishes. Second inexpensive but slightly inconvenient option is public transport, but hey you gotta do what you gotta do.

10.   MAKE TRAVEL YOUR PRIORITY, START SAVING
Next time you are about to make an impulse buy or splurge on an expensive dinner, take a moment to think about how much better the next vacation would make you feel. And then put that money away in your travel fund.

BON VOYAGE!
